“The Crew Members of AirTran Airways are proud to sponsor this exciting event that benefits so many people in the Atlanta area through the work of Travelers Aid of Metropolitan Atlanta,” said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran Airways director of marketing.

“Thanks to all the sponsors and golfers, we’re able to provide opportunities for those who need them most.”
